Summary: The watch works great. I bought it for my boyfriend for Christmas and he wears it all the time. He's only had it about a month so nothing has broken on the watch. It has a little light that turns on to see in the dark. A nice stylish watch.
Summary: This watched arrived promptly, after payment. It was well packaged and was simply everything I ever asked for. Filled with simplicity and functionality, this watch watch has a slick yet sporty finish. The price was reasonable, value for money, especially when I know that Casio is a trusted brand that has reliable watches. Like FreddieW of youtube said , " because amazon.com is, 1. Cheaper 2. Better 3.
Summary: I have been looking for a watch very similar to the one I had as a kid. This one is exactly the same in every way except for the size. For people trying to figure out how big this watch is, it is bigger than a woman's watch and smaller than a man's watch. In other words, it's right in between.
Summary: I previously had two F30-9 watches which kept on ticking until the band disintegrated. (Well, it was a $7 watch, after all.) And I would have gotten a third one except they stopped making it. So, the F91W-1 seemed like a good substitute. So far it is.
Summary: This watch blew me away with it's amazing features and small size. I've owned the F91W for about a year now, and it has seen a lot during that year. Sand, debris, etc. has no effect on this rugged watch - you could strap a bomb to it and it'd probably come out in one piece! But I'm just guessing. Although it is hard to pick, I would say the feature that I love the most is the countdown timer.
Summary: It's been known for quite a while now, but according to US intelligence, wearing the Casio F-91W is a potential sign of someone being a terrorist. There's a whole list of Guantanomo Bay detainees who wore the watch, an old Washington Post article that said terrorists can use the watch to create time bombs and leaked Wikileaks documents linking the watch to al-Qaeda:
Must be a great watch, because US government thinks it makes you a terrorist

Summary: Just an interesting tidbit, according to a recent wikileaks article from US govt internal documentation: "The possession of a Casio F-91W model watch and the silver-color version of this model, the A159W, is an indicator of al-Qaeda training in the manufacture of IEDs. The Casio was known to be given to the students at al-Qaeda bomb-making training courses in Afghanistan, at which the students received instruction in the preparation of timing devices using the watch.
Summary: I am satisfied with this watch in every way except one: it is much smaller than I had anticipated. It is not tiny, but my wrists are large and it looks smaller than any men's watch I would like on my wrist. I bought this watch for the sole purpose of saving wear & tear on my dress watches, and will be worn only when running or cycling or motorcycling, etc.
